It's official. I bought my tickets on Friday. Oct 2 - Dec 8. Fly into Tokyo for 18 days, then onward to Shanghai. From there I make my way around China, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam (maybe elsewhere) before returning to Shanghai for my flight back.
The song Tombs (http://lostonpurpose.bandcamp.com/track/tombs) is about my brief trip to China in 2007. The line "I came and went//I'll be back again//A lie to a friend" is about my desire to one day return to Shanghai, a city I loved but barely spent any time in. I can't believe I'm actually doing it three years later.
